Oh, hear my voice - the table is rumbling...

Performed tonight at the Queen's Pride Week coffeehouse/launch of the Outwrite publication (in which I had a poem). Did the poem, and then two songs (medley of my original THE ABSOLUTELY BANAL SONG and I'M STICKING WITH YOU, which, yes, I played up the audience by pointing out its JUNO connection (the movie, not the goddess, Throwing Muses song or Canadian award...)). Some kid told me I was good, though, sadly, it wasn't the cubby with the ukulele who kept grabbing my mic as it was sagging and erecting it again (well, doesn't that just sound wrong in all the right ways? ;) ). I thought I was okay, though my eye kept watering and I can never hear myself properly on stage, which, tonight, was important, as it's been YEARS since I've performed live (2004, I think, was the last time).
